Pretty Pink Lotus Bud: When did you first recognize you needed consent?

When did you first recognize you needed consent?

The first time I knew I needed consent. It was May 2013. I had received a judicial order to return to my residential state that accused me of endangering my children and removing them without parental consent. In the months prior to this, my mother had ascended, I’d given birth […]

Why my sex positivity is not without fear shame or trauma by Myisha Soule- Guest Feature for PrettyPinkLotusBud.org

Why My Sex Positivity is Not without Fear, Shame, or Trauma.

Bold, Beautiful, and NonBinary

I’m a non-binary human. I say that first and foremost because I think there’s this unspoken “radicalness” to it.

The Common Occurrence of Sexual Coercion

I was 28 years old before I had a complete understanding of what is sexual coercion. I remember driving my grandmother to her general physician.

Pits, Tits, and Naming Your Naughty Bits; A post about finding sexual empowerment through naming your Vajayjay

Pits, Tits, & Naming Your Naughty Bits

From a cultural perspective, we know that there is power in a name. We name our offspring, we name our pets, we name our possessions.

Raising a Sexually Empowered Daughter

For me, to be sexually empowered means owning all aspects of your sexuality, acknowledging the oneness of your mind, body, and spirit in every sexual encounter, and ALWAYS putting your desires and well-being first.

It means embracing all the things that shape your sexuality.

According to my mother, I was intrigued. I poked, prodded, and pulled at it. I even invited her to come see the new treasure I had discovered.
